Observers should be impartial and accurate. We want to know where you are, who else is there and what they are doing. Are you in a cafe, a shop, at a movie, on the street, in school? Who is around, a store clerk, six lawyers on a lunch break, a dozen bikers, a child and her mother? What are they doing, picking their noses, talking about the new season of 24, eating, fidgeting, smoking, smiling, crying, fighting, dancing, talking? What are they saying, and who are they saying it to? As in the examples from the 1930s (See Our Predecessors); no politics and no snarkiness, just observe the minutiae happening wherever you are.
